Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen Makes Me Want to Cinch My Waist

Sometimes I can be so particular about my skin and lipstick color or trying to own a gazillion blazers, that I forget that I have a defined waist and hips. Sarah Burton however has single-handedly reminded me of their existence when she sent models down the runway at Alexander McQueen with waistlines so cinched, I’m sure there must be a corset or two present.

Do you know how alluring drawing attention to your waist is? It’s just so feminine, so va va voom, soooo gonna get you a date or two. (Girl, I so need to date again—one thing I miss about working in the financial services industry is the amount of men around; in fashion/beauty…not so much) You can even “create” one if yours isn’t so defined.

For those of us in love with McQueen designs but not in love with getting evicted from your apartment in exchange for an item from the line, there’s the obi belt. Just about everyone should have one in their wardrobe (just as long as you don’t have it right under your breasts—especially if you have big ones) to upgrade jackets, coats, pencil skirts, etc. Reinvent and recycle, folks.

Examples of obi belts are shown in the widget below. If you’re a crafty one, you can create one out of a scarf or head down to your local fabric store.

    Is it too un-PC of me to point out that since you are in beauty/fashion, the men you do encounter probably are looking for the same thing as you? But at least they can help you look fabulous!!

    But hey, compare it to my life, working first in engineering then in tech, where yes, there are men everywhere but “ewww.” You know the saying “water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink”?
